      Hi,
      villain play like 20/14, donk about 24%

      how aggressive he is is veryyyyyy important
      first what he can call on flop: monsters (Tx,66),showdown value hands like 77-99 and flush draw.On turn flush and one additional boat hits.I don't see any reason to raise here because you will be called or raised be better hands and you're wasting your equity and sd value if he's bluffing.I think to raise for value on brick turn.
      I raise turn for free showdown on river

      I think it's huge misconception.You can bet(raise) for value or as a bluff (semibluff) and to capitalize dead monies.When you have sd value hand and you're not likely to be outdrawn or already can be outdrawn ,the you want to go to sd as cheap as possible.
      Hope it helps.

      Hello wxmwoaili,

      Do you really think that there are so many worse hands which may Call you on turn? And you don't need free showdown, you might even go for maximum value if you hit big. Therefore I might even prefer just Calling on turn since he will anyways have hard time to Call with a lot worse and we can still ship it when we do hit. Would be really ugly if we face a 3bet.

      Best regards.
